Rules for Weight Loss for Newcomers: Part 2-

We are well on our way to a great start for weight loss tips from yesterday.  Let’s get going with some more:

6.  Find friends/family/professionals that support your goals for weight loss and can help you stay on target with your goals.

7.  Ask for help if you feel your spirits faltering.  Write to me via the blog page, ask someone who is in good shape and you like their eating habits, or find a reputable gym or YMCA trainer to help.

8. Don’t use the word DIET!  Think of changes as a lifestyle choice.

9. Eat 5-6 small meals and DON’T SKIP BREAKFAST.

10. Keep a private food journal.  It will help you with portion control, help you identify your trigger situations for bad food choices, and help you with healthy future food choices.  There have been times I wanted to dive into a bag of candy corn head first, but the fact that I don’t want to write it down in my diary, helps me resist (I know…the games we play with ourselves).

11.  Make a goal for overall health plan (weight loss, fitness, health reasons), and create a prize that you will get if you attain your goal such as a pair of those fashionable skinny jeans, a massage, or tickets to a play.  Try not to make the reward a bag of candy corn. J

Remember; It takes a village to raise a child…and a plan on your part to change a lifetime of unhealthy eating habits!

Paula:  What do you suggest for dairy substitutes?  Tofu?  I have lactose problems but I do love dairy.  I wonder if there are certain kinds of cheese that may not have as much lactose?

I would like to know your thoughts.
